16 best push-button phones

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Push-button phones, it seems, will always be in demand. Such devices are very reliable – they rarely break with a normal fall on the asphalt. Also, a mobile phone works on a single battery charge for a long time, even despite its low capacity. And the push-button device is much easier to master for an elderly person who is trite to the touch display. The assortment of 'buttons' is now very wide, but at the same time, all these phones are not heard – the name of one or another model will often tell you nothing. How to make a choice? To do this, we recommend that you read our article. It contains the best mobile phones among those available in Russian retail. We draw your attention to the fact that smartphones can also be included in this selection – the main thing is that they have a physical digital or QWERTY keyboard.

Best inexpensive push-button phones

Alcatel One Touch 1020D

Rating: 4.7

Alcatel One Touch 1020D

One of the simplest devices in our rating. It is also the cheapest – in some stores it can be purchased for only 690 rubles. It is also a rare case when a push-button mobile phone is offered in two colors – black and white.

This phone is very small and lightweight. At the same time, there was a place inside it for two SIM-cards. There is no microSD card slot here. It is simply not required as the product does not support MP3 music, let alone any other media files. However, the owner of this mobile phone will still be able to listen to music – through the built-in FM radio. It's funny that most of the devices in our collection are endowed with it.

With such functionality, the push-button device could easily get a monochrome display. However, the manufacturer is still generous with a color screen with a diagonal of 1.8 inches and a resolution of 126×160 pixels. He also introduced a flashlight into his creation. However, it is not recommended to actively use it, because the capacity of the battery present here is only 400 mAh. Strictly speaking, it is the battery that is the main disadvantage of the device – its full charge is enough for only three hours of talk time. Therefore, this is not the best choice for a person accustomed to high-volume conversations. But in standby mode the phone is able to hold out for a couple of days, in this regard there are no serious complaints about it.

Advantages

  • Two slots for SIM cards;
  • Built-in flashlight;
  • There is an FM radio;
  • Miniature sizes;
  • Weight barely reaches 63 g;
  • An affordable price tag for almost everyone.

disadvantages

  • Extremely low battery capacity;
  • There is no MP3 support;
  • Low screen resolution;
  • There is no camera.

Push-button telephone with QWERTY keyboard and Wi-Fi module

BlackBerry Q10

Rating: 4.8

BlackBerry Q10

In fact, this is a smartphone, not a phone, because it operates under a full-fledged operating system BlackBerry OS. However, it could not fail to get into our rating, because the firmware of the device is much inferior Android in terms of opening possibilities, so many people take this device for a traditional mobile phone, supplemented by a QWERTY keyboard. Only a very expensive mobile phone, because its cost varies from 13 to 20 thousand rubles. It is also a phone that does not have an official guarantee – this is due to the fact that the brand BlackBerry is present on the Russian market exclusively on an unofficial basis.

None of the devices in our rating has a display with such a high resolution. 720×720 pixels – with a modest 3.1-inch diagonal, this results in a pixel density of 328 PPI. This is an excellent result, which, for example, many budget smartphones cannot boast of. And I am also pleased with the fact that the screen was created using technology AMOLED. This means that the buyer is waiting for perfect black colors, the lack of backlighting in the dark is especially noticeable. Also, such a display has low power consumption.

A comfortable QWERTY keyboard is located under the screen. But to control the operating system, it is not necessary to use it exclusively – the display here uses a touchscreen, in this regard BlackBerry Q10 does not differ from all modern smartphones. You can also see the front camera on the front side of the push-button device. But this device is intended for a business person, so this element will definitely not help in shooting high-quality selfies – the camera shows itself well only in organizing video communication. By the way, you can also talk with your interlocutor through a wired or wireless headset – there is both a 3.5 mm audio jack and Bluetooth 4.0. The presence of an NFC chip looks quite unexpected.

On the back of the device is the lens of an 8-megapixel camera. It lacks stars from the sky, but it can be used to shoot video with a resolution Full HD. The quality is far from what the rear cameras of smartphones are capable of. But if we talk about the representatives of our rating, then they do not offer anything of the kind. Not surprisingly, they don't have a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor at their disposal. Also under the body of this QWERTY phone are 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of permanent memory. In a word, it is difficult to find fault with the device. The only thing buyers lack is a fingerprint scanner – it seems to us that such an expensive gadget must have it.

Advantages

  • Powerful processor;
  • Convenient QWERTY keyboard;
  • Excellent AMOLED – display;
  • There are LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 modules;
  • Decent rear camera
  • Long battery life;
  • There is a slot for microSD;
  • Large amount of memory;
  • Installation of additional applications is possible.

disadvantages

  • No fingerprint sensor;
  • Built-in only one SIM card slot;
  • Many special services BlackBerry no longer work;
  • Very high cost.

The best push-button phones with a classic body

Nokia 3310 Dual Sim (2017)

Rating: 4.9

Nokia 3310 Dual Sim (2017)

At one time, the reincarnation of the Nokia 3310 caused a violent reaction from both ordinary people and professionals who review various electronic equipment. HMD Global took the classic model as a basis, significantly transforming it, making it more modern. For example, the 2017 product received a 2.4-inch color screen with a resolution of 320×240 pixels. Text and icons are clearly visible even under the bright sun – not every mobile phone can boast of this. And the new version of Nokia 3310 received a two-megapixel camera, with which you can take a picture of a person in order to place his face in the contact book. For such pictures, 20 MB of permanent memory are allocated. If you want to use the device as an MP3-player, you will have to get a microSD card.

The structure of such a phone could not but include an FM radio. However, remember that it works only when headphones are connected – they will act as an antenna. The product also has a module Bluetooth 3.0, which is used to synchronize with wireless headsets. Also, the mobile phone offers Internet access – for this purpose, EDGE technology is used. A flashlight can also please someone.

Perhaps the Nokia 3310 (2017) should suit every customer. Especially those who understand that they are buying a mobile phone, not a smartphone. In a word, the push-button phone was included in our rating for a reason. And do not forget that in stores you can find two versions of the device – they differ in the number of SIM card slots. And do not expect indestructibility from this apparatus – in this regard, it differs from the prototype only for the worse.

Advantages

  • There is a simple camera;
  • Sufficiently long battery life;
  • There is a flashlight;
  • Memory card slot is not forgotten;
  • There is an FM radio;
  • Bright body colors;
  • Good LCD display
  • Internet access is possible.

disadvantages

  • Sizes may seem oversized;
  • Not the best speaker;
  • The price tag cannot be called low;
  • There are problems with the text input language.

Philips Xenium E331

Rating: 4.8

Philips Xenium E331

Another mobile phone made by the Chinese, but already distributed under the Philips brand. This push-button device also supports the installation of two SIM-cards – the single-symbol version of this model simply does not exist. And here too Bluetooth is present – a module with which a wireless headset is connected.

When you look at the phone, it immediately becomes clear that it is primarily intended for the elderly. This is evidenced by the large print with which the numbers on the keys are written. They will like the light weight of the device, which is no more than 112 g. Also, they will appreciate the 2.4-inch display, the resolution of which is 320×240 pixels. On such a screen, all menu lines are clearly visible, even if a person has vision problems. It should also be noted that there is an MP3 player here. Including MP3 music can be put on the call. There is also an FM radio here. Interestingly, you can activate it even without connecting headphones – the radio has a built-in antenna. This is a rare property that almost all the other devices we reviewed are deprived of.

Otherwise it is a typical mobile phone. The user has 3.8 MB of internal memory available here, so music and pictures will have to be uploaded to a microSD card. By the way, this is best done with a computer. Of course, Philips Xenium E331 also knows how to access the Internet, but the simplest GPRS module is used for this – the speed is enough only for loading WAP sites. We also do not recommend using the camera – it only has a 0.3 megapixel resolution. I am glad that nothing bad can be said about the battery – 1600 mAh capacity is enough for many hours of battery life. However, the Xenium line of phones is known for its long-term performance.

Advantages

  • There is Bluetooth 2.1;
  • Installation of a memory card is possible;
  • Long working time;
  • Low weight;
  • There are two slots for SIM cards;
  • Excellent LCD display
  • Listening to MP3 music is possible;
  • There is an FM radio that does not require headphones;
  • The kit includes a cradle.

disadvantages

  • Bad camera;
  • Difficulties with the choice of the Russian language when writing SMS;
  • Inconvenient contact editing;
  • No flashlight;
  • The phone is not cheap.

Alcatel 2008G

Rating: 4.8

Alcatel 2008G

One of the most affordable phones in our ranking. In Russian stores, they ask for no more than 1,700 rubles, and often you can buy it for much less money. This device is very compact, and its weight does not exceed an insignificant 90 g. At the same time, inside it there was a place for Bluetooth – a module that not every push-button telephone receives. But the SIM card slot is installed here in a single copy, and this is the main drawback of this device. With which, however, it is quite possible to come to terms.

Three color versions Alcatel 2008G went on sale. In any case, the case will be made of plastic, and the bezel will be occupied by the keyboard and 2.4-inch LCD display. The resolution of the latter is 320×240 pixels, and the pixel density here reaches 167 PPI. In a word, it is impossible to find fault with the screen. As well as the camera, the resolution of which reaches 2 megapixels. Of course, this parameter is extremely small for video shooting, but such a camera provides quite decent pictures for a contact book.

This mobile phone recognizes MP3 music without any problems. It should be contained on a memory card, since the amount of built-in storage available to the user here is only 5 MB. A 3.5mm audio jack can be found on the device's case. Also, the sound can be output to a wireless headset using the module Bluetooth 3.0. You can also listen to music through the built-in radio, which does not require connecting headphones – the creators have endowed it with its own antenna.

Perhaps this phone represents the best combination of price and performance. A push-button telephone even has a button SOS, which in certain conditions can be very useful. It remains to add that the capacity of the battery used here is 1400 mAh.

Advantages

  • Decent battery life
  • The set includes a cradle;
  • The screen has a high resolution;
  • Very light weight;
  • There is a button on the body SOS;
  • Installation of a memory card is available;
  • There is an MP3 player;
  • There is an FM radio that does not require headphones;
  • Present Bluetooth – module;
  • Three colors to choose from.

disadvantages

  • Only one SIM card slot;
  • Confusing menu (the device is not recommended for an elderly person);
  • There is no flashlight;
  • Not the best conversational speaker.

Nokia 130

Rating: 4.7

Nokia 130

The phone is quite easy to use. Its release began in the days when Nokia was owned by the company Microsoft. It is felt that the manufacturer had some problems with money, in connection with which the mobile phone received very weak components. For example, the menu here is displayed on a 1.8-inch LCD display, the resolution of which is only 160×128 pixels. This alone does not allow recommending such a purchase to older people. Also, the savings are felt by the fact that the device does not have a camera. At all! This means that the contact book will be without photos – with an incoming call, only the name will be displayed.

One could expect that such a device will not receive support for MP3 tunes. However, in this regard, the manufacturer did not save. Moreover, MP3 music can be output to a wireless headset using Bluetooth 3.0 technology. If you don't have such an accessory at your disposal, then you can get by with wired headphones – the 3.5 mm audio jack has not gone anywhere. By the way, their connection will be required and, if necessary, listen to FM radio.

The handset turned out to be practically weightless, it is one of the lightest phones in our rating. Also, one cannot but rejoice at the availability of at least two color versions of the device on sale – with red and black cases. But one SIM-card slot will seem nonsense to some. However, the phone does not know how to go online, so there is no particular sense in combining the two tariffs. The device is also able to boast of the presence of a slot for a memory card – a maximum of 32 GB is supported. The autonomous operation of the phone is ensured by the familiar BL-5C battery with a capacity of 1020 mAh. The manufacturer promises that this will be enough for 13 hours of continuous talk.

Advantages

  • Weight does not exceed 68 g;
  • Decent battery life
  • Built-in FM radio;
  • There is support Bluetooth – headsets;
  • MP3 music playback is possible;
  • Two body colors are available;
  • There is a slot for a memory card;
  • The set includes a simple stereo headset.

disadvantages

  • The screen has a low resolution;
  • The alarm volume does not change;
  • There is no camera (does not apply to all copies);
  • No internet access;
  • There is only one SIM card slot;
  • Organizing your phone book seems awkward.

The best push-button phones with a good camera

LG G360

Rating: 4.9

LG G360

One of the most expensive push-button devices in our rating, if we talk exclusively about phones. In Russian retail, for LG G360 they ask for about 4300 rubles. At the same time, they offer to buy a device in one of two colors – red and black. The high cost is due to the excellent quality of the product – this mobile phone will definitely not break in the next one and a half to two years of use. The form factor also influenced the price tag. The point is that this is a clamshell, albeit without an additional display on the top panel.

If you open the device, you can access the 3-inch screen. Its resolution is 320×240 pixels. Even a visually impaired person can discern what is happening on the display, which is good news. However, a person with good eyesight will immediately pay attention to pixelation, which is not good. Also, a very large keyboard is used here – this is already a plus.

Under the back cover there is a removable battery familiar to such devices. Its capacity is 950 mAh, which is quite enough for most users. The phone also has two SIM card slots. This option is useful if you have both a home and work number. The rear camera is also useful to someone. Its resolution is 1.3 megapixels. This is a very good parameter, rarely found in push-button mobile phones. It is a sin not to use such a camera for photographing people from a contact book. By the way, 20 MB of internal memory are allocated here to save images. If this is not enough, you can always use a memory card up to 16 GB. You will also have to install it if you want to listen to MP3 music. The sound, by the way, can be output not only to wired, but also to Bluetooth – headphones.

Advantages

  • The phone is designed as a clamshell;
  • You can insert a memory card;
  • High reliability;
  • Decent LCD display
  • There is a decent rear camera;
  • The device has a module Bluetooth 2.1;
  • Built-in FM radio;
  • There is support for MP3;
  • There are two slots for SIM cards;
  • Very long battery life.

disadvantages

  • High price;
  • There is no external display;
  • Inconvenient section with SMS-messages.

Philips E560

Rating: 4.8

Philips E560

This phone looks quite stylish, although it belongs to the traditional candy bar form factor. On its front panel there was a place for a keyboard, manufacturer's logo and a 2.4-inch display. The latter has a resolution of 320×240 pixels, which allows it to accommodate a large number of icons and menu items. On the back side, you can find a fairly large lens belonging to a 2-megapixel camera. She knows how to take good pictures, and if desired, she can be used to record a video (but very lousy quality). Moreover, the camera is complemented by an LED flash, which is a rarity for a modern push-button telephone.

Of course, such an expensive push-button device could not do without support for MP3 music. It should be uploaded to a memory card – the maximum mobile phone is able to recognize a 32 GB drive. Your phone cannot access the Internet on its own, so you need a computer, tablet or smartphone to download songs. The sound can be output either to the headphones or to Bluetooth – the headset. Or use the built-in speaker, also used for speakerphone.

The device turned out to be quite decent. He's definitely worth the money. Someone may not like only the fact that there is one color – exclusively black. But the device has two slots for SIM-cards. In terms of weight, it is 138g – pretty decent for a modern 'button'.

Advantages

  • There is a slot for a memory card;
  • High reliability;
  • Good rear camera with flash
  • The battery capacity reaches 3100 mAh;
  • Very good LCD display;
  • Implemented support for MP3 music;
  • There is an FM radio;
  • You can insert two SIM cards;
  • Yes Bluetooth.

disadvantages

  • The cost is not low;
  • No internet access;
  • The device turned out to be heavy.

BQ BQ – 3201 Option

Rating: 4.7

BQ BQ - 3201 Option

This mobile phone immediately attracts attention. Many consumers are attracted by the LCD display installed here, which reaches a diagonal of 3.2 inches. The screen resolution is 240×320 pixels, the pixelation is not striking. Under the screen there was a place for numerous keys, with the help of which dialing and menu control are realized. If you look at the rear panel, a rather large lens immediately stands out. Under it is a sensor with a resolution of 1.3 megapixels. If the task is to photograph a person for a contact book, then the camera will definitely cope with it. But not in the dark, because this phone is not equipped with a flash.

The device comes in two colors. Like most mobile phones currently in use, it supports a pair of SIM cards. There is also a slot for a memory card, the volume of which should not exceed 16 GB. Basically, the drive is needed to listen to MP3 music, because it is pointless to upload such melodies to the built-in memory – 30 MB is enough for only a couple of tracks. By the way, the user can also listen to FM radio. What's more, the phone has a TV tuner! But only analog. When our country completely switches to the digital format DVB-T2, this option will become useless.

It should be noted that this mobile phone is not able to access the Internet. And it got into our rating not only due to the camera and screen, but also due to the very capacious battery. In a word, the device definitely costs its two thousand rubles. If only you are willing to put up with the fact that some people will hear your conversation. The point is that the device does not have a front speaker. That is, the rear speaker works during a conversation, just at low volume.

Advantages

  • Not a bad camera, albeit without a flash;
  • Yes Bluetooth;
  • Adequate price tag;
  • Weight does not exceed 116 g;
  • The microSD slot is not forgotten;
  • Installation of two SIM-cards is available;
  • FM radio and TV tuner included;
  • A very decent LCD display;
  • Two body colors to choose from;
  • The battery capacity is 1750 mAh.

disadvantages

  • You cannot go online;
  • The conversation is conducted on the rear speaker.

Best push-button phones with powerful battery

Philips Xenium E570

Rating: 4.9

Philips Xenium E570

It was Philips that at one time began to equip its phones with a capacious battery. Since then, the Chinese have received the rights to the brand, but the situation has not changed – many mobile phones from the Xenium series still receive a capacious battery. For example, the Philips Xenium E570 includes a 3160 mAh battery. With him, even with regular conversations, you will have to use the chargers only once every few days or even a week.

But the device is unique not only for its battery. The manufacturer has endowed his creation with built-in memory in the amount of 133 MB. If you don't want to turn your phone into an MP3 player, then you definitely won't need a microSD card. By the way, you can also listen to music here through Bluetooth – headphones. And there is also an FM radio, but to activate it, you need wired headphones – they will act as an antenna.

The picture is displayed here on a 2.8-inch display with a resolution of 240×320 pixels. We can say that this is the standard for the modern 'button'. A flashlight should also please the buyer, which can be useful in a dark entrance or somewhere else. Also, one cannot fail to note the presence of two slots for SIM-cards. Well, you can complain about the weight – the device turned out to be quite heavy.

Advantages

  • There is Internet access;
  • There are two slots for SIM cards;
  • The rear camera is supplemented with a flash;
  • Good LCD display
  • You can listen to MP3 music;
  • There is an FM radio;
  • There is Bluetooth 3.0;
  • Large amount of permanent memory;
  • A capacious battery is used;
  • The microSD slot is not forgotten.

disadvantages

  • Weight reaches 156 g;
  • Not the best interface;
  • Very high cost;
  • The camera has a low resolution.

SENSEIT L208

Rating: 4.8

SENSEIT L208

Another push-button phone in our rating, the screen resolution of which is 240×320 pixels. With a 2.4-inch diagonal, this is quite an adequate parameter, allowing the firmware to display a large number of icons. But the push-button device got into our selection thanks to its 4000 mAh battery. The manufacturer promises that the user will be able to talk on this phone for more than a day and a half in a row.

There is only one color version of the device on sale. As befits a modern mobile phone, SENSEIT L208 has two slots for SIM cards. The weight of the device is 120 g. 30 MB of permanent memory are hidden under the case. Taking into account that the device supports MP3 music, this may well seem a little. In this regard, the memory card slot will definitely come in handy. The maximum system supports a 32 GB drive. By the way, it is not necessary to listen to MP3 songs. Instead, you can use the FM radio by connecting wired headphones to your mobile phone. A flashlight can also please the buyer.

Claims here can be made only to the interface. In particular, this device has a very strange implementation of the key unlocking system – for this you need to make as many as three presses.

Advantages

  • There are two slots for a SIM card;
  • Very capacious battery;
  • There is a slot for a memory card;
  • Present Bluetooth 3.0;
  • Built-in FM radio;
  • There is support for MP3 music;
  • Very good LCD display
  • Affordable price tag.

disadvantages

  • There is no camera;
  • Not the best menu;
  • No internet access;
  • The minimum memory size for SMS.

Fly FF249

Rating: 4.7

Fly FF249

Externally simplified mobile phone. This is a traditional candy bar, on the front side of which there is a keyboard and LCD display. All keys are separate so that they can be easily found blindly. The screen installed here has a diagonal of 2.4 inches and a resolution of 240×320 pixels. This is more than enough to display a large number of lines of text and icons that make up the menu.

If you look at the back cover, you can see the camera lens. But it's better to forget about it right away, since the camera resolution is only 0.3 megapixels. But the FM radio will surely please someone. Note, however, that a wired headphone connection is required to listen to it. If you want to use an MP3 player, then you will not notice this limitation. By the way, the sound can also be output to Bluetooth – a headset, which is most important when driving a car.

Otherwise, this is a typical push-button phone, which got into our rating mainly because of the battery, the capacity of which reaches 4000 mAh. There is no doubt that the buyer will rarely use the charger. Interestingly, the manufacturer did not hide which processor is installed here – this is a single-core MediaTek MT6261, the clock frequency of which is only 260 MHz. This is quite enough for the stable operation of the firmware installed here. And don't trust online stores – the device has practically no memory of its own. The owner of such a device will definitely need a microSD card (the maximum is supported by an 8 GB drive).

Advantages

  • There are two slots for SIM cards;
  • Extremely long battery life;
  • Adequate cost;
  • Yes Bluetooth 2.1;
  • You can listen to MP3 music;
  • There is an FM radio;
  • Installation of a memory card is possible;
  • Solid display;
  • There is a flashlight.

disadvantages

  • Disgusting camera;
  • Weight reaches 137 g;
  • No internet access;
  • T9 is missing.

Best push-button clamshell phones

Alcatel 2051D

Rating: 4.9

Alcatel 2051D

Externally unpretentious clamshell. It got into our rating not because of its design, but due to its very good characteristics. For example, the product has a solid LCD display. Its diagonal is 2.4 inches, and the resolution is 240×320 pixels. Nokia smartphones running Symbian once possessed a similar screen. It uses a much more common firmware, but its capabilities should be enough for an ordinary user.

Of course, in order to reduce the cost, the creators had to remove the auxiliary screen from the top cover. In this regard, you will not be able to find out the name of the caller before opening the phone. But on the other hand, the device received a good camera, the resolution of which reaches 2 megapixels. The device is also capable of boasting two SIM card slots. Please note that a regular card is inserted into one slot, and a micro-SIM into the other. Many more buyers will use the memory card slot, which defines a maximum of 32GB storage.

This clamshell has a comfortable keyboard inside. And somewhere under the body of the push-button telephone there is a processor, the clock frequency of which reaches 312 MHz. Alas, the manufacturer saved on the battery – 750 mAh capacity is enough for only one or two days of battery life with moderate use. Like many other devices reviewed in this rating, the device supports MP3 music playback, as well as FM radio. If there is such a desire, the sound can be output to a wireless headset – for this purpose, the standard Bluetooth 2.1 is used.

Advantages

  • There are two slots for SIM cards;
  • Yes Bluetooth; Decent LCD display;
  • Built-in FM radio;
  • There is support for MP3;
  • Fold-out form factor;
  • You can insert a memory card (up to 32 GB);
  • Good enough camera.

disadvantages

  • The design will not suit everyone;
  • Very modest battery
  • The font on the menu may seem too small.

Best Rugged Key Phones

TeXet TM-512R

Rating: 4.9

TeXet TM-512R

An increasingly rare mobile phone on sale, which could not fail to get into our rating. This device differs from competitors in the presence of a shock-resistant case. Moreover, the gadget can be dropped into fresh water – nothing will happen to it. However, it is not recommended to leave it there for a long time. However, it is not difficult to quickly find the phone under water – bright yellow inserts save it.

The device turned out to be heavy, its weight reaches 168 g. But on the other hand, such a device is extremely difficult to damage, it will serve its owner for many years. In this case, the phone will offer to combine tariffs of different operators, because there are two slots for SIM-cards. The microSD slot has not been forgotten either – the maximum firmware will determine the 16 GB drive. Basically, you need a memory card to listen to MP3 songs. At the same time, the sound can be output not only to the built-in speaker, but also to any type of headphones – including wireless ones. It is interesting that the product even has a GPRS module. However, it is very inconvenient to go online using such a push-button telephone, so hardly anyone will use this function.

The main disadvantage of this mobile phone is, oddly enough, the screen. With a 2-inch diagonal, it has a resolution of only 220×176 pixels. However, this is quite enough in order to consider all the most important information. And it should be noted that the display is covered with a protective glass that saves from scratches, which is a rarity for a modern 'button'. The teXet TM-512R also includes a rear camera with a resolution of 2 megapixels. The manufacturer did not forget about the FM radio, which can be useful anywhere in nature. But even more in such conditions, the capacious battery pleases – buyers confirm that the connection of the network adapter to such a phone is rarely required.

Advantages

  • There is a slot for a memory card;
  • The set includes a belt holder with a compass;
  • Built-in FM radio;
  • Implemented MP3 support;
  • Shockproof and waterproof housing is used;
  • Not a bad camera;
  • Battery capacity reaches 2570 mAh;

Seals VR7

Rating: 4.8

Seals VR7

Another secure phone in our ranking. It has a body that is almost entirely painted in a bright orange color. The only exceptions are black rubber pads, which act as shock absorbers when the device falls on a hard surface. It should be noted that the buttons here are also rubber. This means that water will definitely not penetrate through them if the device falls somewhere in the river. This will definitely delight travelers. They will appreciate the presence of GPS navigation as well. For its full-fledged work, you will have to get hold of a microSD card, because area maps weigh a lot.

A push-button telephone for a traveler must work for a sufficiently long time. In this regard, the manufacturer has placed a 1750 mAh battery under the back cover. According to the creators of the device, a full charge will last for 12 hours of continuous talk. It is interesting that the device can access the Internet – it supports the EDGE standard as much as possible. The number of wireless modules also includes Bluetooth 2.0.

As you might guess, the device has no problems with playing MP3 songs. Also, an FM radio is built in here, which may well please in the country or anywhere else. As for the screen, it uses a 2-inch LCD panel. Its resolution is 240×320 pixels, as a result of which the pixel density reaches 200 PPI – not every budget smartphone can boast of this parameter! However, this push-button phone is much more expensive than the most affordable smartphones – they ask about 10 thousand rubles for it. Quite decent money for a gadget with one SIM card slot and a two megapixel camera.

Advantages

  • Waterproof and shockproof housing;
  • There is a GPS, digital compass and Bluetooth;
  • There is support for EDGE networks;
  • Installation of a memory card (up to 8 GB) is available;
  • There is support for MP3 music;
  • Relatively good camera
  • Excellent LCD display
  • A capacious battery is used.

disadvantages

  • Weight reaches 166 g;
  • Only one SIM card can be inserted;
  • Very high cost.

Best push-button phones with large screen

Xiaomi Qin1s AI Phone

Rating: 4.9

Xiaomi Qin1s AI Phone

At the time of writing this rating, this mobile phone has not yet gone on sale. However, the company Xiaomi has already officially announced its unusual creation, so there is no doubt that it will soon become another hit of Chinese online stores. The device is significantly different from all the devices discussed above. The fact is that it uses a special Mocor 5 OS firmware created on the basis of Android. It is also one of the few push-button phones that can boast an IPS display. This screen has very good color rendering and maximum viewing angles. Its diagonal is 2.8 inches, and the resolution is 320×240 pixels.

Under the body of this device is a dual-core Spreadtrum SC9820E processor. It provides not only the firmware, but also the GPS chip. The push-button phone also includes 256 MB of RAM and 512 MB of permanent memory. During the announcement, nothing was said about the microSD card slot. But it would be very strange if he was absent here. But the manufacturer did not forget to mention the support of two SIM-cards. Also, the new product has wireless modules Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi. This means that in many respects the device is almost indistinguishable from smartphones, but at the same time it has a comfortable physical keyboard. There is even an infrared port, which allows you to control a TV or speaker system! It remains to add that the capacity of the battery installed here is 1480 mAh, and it is recharged via the USB Type-C connector.

The problem with the push-button telephone from Xiaomi is that the Chinese are unlikely to present an international version. This means that the firmware can be deprived of the Russian language. And certainly the Cyrillic alphabet will not appear on the keys of this mobile phone.

Advantages

  • A USB Type-C connector is used;
  • Outstanding IPS display
  • There are two slots for SIM cards;
  • The firmware has a lot of useful applications;
  • There is a powerful processor;
  • Can act as a TV remote control;
  • Built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules;
  • There is high-speed Internet access;
  • Long battery life.

disadvantages

  • Most likely intended exclusively for the Chinese market.

Conclusion

As you may have noticed, each instance considered in our selection has certain disadvantages. Unfortunately, it is now customary to save money on the production of the 'button', and therefore all devices are somehow limited in their capabilities. However, we believe that you are unlikely to be seriously disappointed with the purchased phone if it is a model from our rating. It is quite possible to put up with a few shortcomings.
